Food information on the Internet - a basic guide compiled by the Leatherhead Food Research Association and Karen Blakeman 1997 price UKL65.00 Leatherhead Food Research Association, Randalls Road, Leatherhead, Surrey KT22 7RY, UK
The Internet is a mine of useful (as well as useless) information, if only the searcher knows where to begin. An incredible amount of time can rapidly elapse while searching for, and locating, even a few sources of useful information. The Leatherhead Food Research Association in the UK had just this in mind when they compiled a guide for people in (or interested in) the food and drink industry. They have evaluated and documented important sites on the Internet in an attempt to produce a basic manual that would offer access to a broad, but comprehensive, summary of key sites across all aspects of food science and technology. After a brief introduction to terminology and search engines, the manual is divided into subject categories. Within each section there are descriptions of the contents of the major sites relating to the subject followed by a select listing of other relevant sites with their accompanying URLs (Uniform Resource Locator). The guide comes as a pocket-sized, leather, ring-bound volume with 113 punched pages of information and 10 spare pages for notes.
